€agles 3:36 (Eng)


The 2014 Veterans Tournament Plate Final would be contested by Dickie Dogs and €agles 3:36. In only our second Veterans tournament this would be our first Plate competition….there was a chance for history to be made for whoever won the inaugural Plate trophy.

€agles 3:36 were no strangers to finals and this was their third. On both previous occasions they had emerged victorious so it was some task that lay ahead for the Dickie Dogs. The legendary CSF currently held the record of most Plate victories in our history with four - €agles 3:36 had the chance to move within one win of this record.

On today's form there was very little to differentiate the two teams. Dickie Dogs had 2 wins, 2 draws and just the loss to their name. They'd scored 10 goals, conceded 5 and kept 3 clean sheets in their five games to date. For €agles 3:36, it was 3 wins, 1 draw and 1 defeat with 12 goals for and 7 conceded with one clean sheet. Both teams had finished 3 rd in their group.

With the game underway we were treated to an open and entertaining first half with saw Richard Parsons emerge as the hero for €agles 3:36. He scored a wonder volley and added a second with a calm side foot to put his team 2-0 up. A captain's goal for Dickie Dogs' Ian Hall reduced the deficit.

So half-time and it was 2-1. Who could summon up that one last push for victory? The onus was on Dickie Dogs with time running out on the day's play but whereas we had plenty of goals to enjoy in the first period the second half settled down and ultimately proved goal-less as €agles 3:36 held on to claim their 3 rd Plate title in 4 tournaments.

For Dickie Dogs it was disappointment to fall just short but it had been a great day for them (injury to Mark Bee aside). For now they had to contend with Runners-Up medals but maybe it will be winners medals and trophies waiting for them next time.
